I have 2 computers at my home, both of them use Windows Xp Pro and have the same model DVD RW from ASUS, but the second computer recently has been giving me some problems while playing any DVD / VCD movie/video, what happens is, when I insert DVD and play I can hear audio but there is no video, if I keep double clicking my mouse continuously I can see few milliseconds of the video image flowing.
Both DVD RWâ€™s been firmware Updated & Converted to a Pioneer to avoid region code problems, and also use DVD Region killer 2.7. I used to think it was my graphics card or The DVD Rom, but both Graphics card and DVD rom is A OK.
So I have reinstalled Windows XP Pro, After installation I installed Power DVD 6 and I was able to play any dvds without any problem. I made a restore point and after that I started to install various software, such as K-Lite Codec Pack, Office, DIVX player, WiNRAR, Sopecast Player, ACDSee but after I finished installing most of the software I tried to play a DVD, GOD! The same problem occurred again! I quickly used the windows restore point and restored my PC back to earlier time, Then I started to install each software one by one and also tested them at the same time, and discovered that when I install ACDSee the DVDâ€™s donâ€™t play, So I got rid of that too. Every thing was good as gold, then I installed my webcam , after every thing was done I changed my primary Boot device to HDD( as its CD Drive while installing XP) Then I see the same problem! Cant play ! I undo the things but no work, I restored at earlier time and Reinstalled Win Rar or The Webcam, but now after any installation The DVD wort work!! So Now I am going on the restoration point!!
What Is wrong with this machine? The HDD is at Primary Master and DVD RW is Secondary Master, How can I solve this? What is this problem, I really donâ€™t know who to seek help, CAN any one please! please help me out??
